Goodbye, Pamana

I still remember how emotional I was when the monkey eating eagle named “Panama” was freed last June 12 of this year to his natural habitat. I was crying and I know that it was really a tears of joy. I was very proud that there is a group who takes care of these animals and trying their best to save the decreasing number of this kind.


Releasing the bird into the wild is a fulfillment.   It is their dream to be free.  Everybody never dreamed of staying in the cage forever.  Humans feel the same way as well, right?  Sad to say the news tonight that the bird is already dead.

I just wanted to share with you the lyrics of KC Concepcion version of the song titled “Agila (Haring Ibon)” and it goes:

Agila (Haring Ibon) lyrics

Nais kung lumipad tulad ng agila
At lumutang lutang sa hangin
Magkaroon ng pugad sa puso ng kagubatan
Ngunit ito ay panaginip lang at maaring di matupad

'Pagkat ang kagubatan ay unti-unting nawawala
Mga puno nito'y nangingibang bayan
At 'pag walang puno wala na ring mapupugaran
Kapag ang agila'y walang pugad Wala na syang dahilang lumipad

Oh haring ibon, hari kung tunay
Nais kung tumulong ng kaharian mo'y muling mabuhay

Kung nais mong makakita ng agila
H'wag kang tumingala't tumitig sa langit
'Pagkat ang mga agila nitong ating bayan
Ang iba'y nabihag na Ang natitira'y bihirang magpakita

Tiniklop na nila ang kanilang mga pakpak
Hinubad na nila ang kanilang mga plumahe
At sila'y nagsipagtago sa natitirang gubat
Ang lahi ba nila'y tuluyan ng mawawala

Oh haring ibon, hari kung tunay
Nais kung tumulong ng kaharian mo'y muling mabuhay (2x) 


I just can't help, but to shed tears and I know that I am very humiliated.  Listening to this song again won't stop my tears from falling. Sad to say, the lyrics are true.

How many times we received news like this?

This is not new!

My only wish that this will be given justice immediately. Take this very seriously.  The effort of those people trying to save them is incomparable and we must not let it put into waste.

I am hoping.  Someday, we will give what you deserve killer!
